    Apple.

    I emailed them before we went to the island to verify that they had a SIM card for the phone I was bringing. They did reply to confirm the availability of the SIM card.

    Unlocking the phone won't damage anything - it just lets you swap out SIM cards to use different networks when traveling. All they'll do is pop the SIM card back in when they get back to the US and it'll re-joiin the Cricket network. I'm actually surprised network providers are still locking phones in the US.

    Make sure they carry a paper clip to pop open the sim holder so they can swap the cards.

    Thanks schexc and act1996! I have emailed SETAR to ask if they have one for my old Samsung Galaxy S7. I am assuming they do because that phone is not that old.

    As for unlocking my parent's phones... I should have probably said this instead: if something were to go weird on their phone after they got back, they would immediately assume it was due to the unlock and SIM card swap and then I would have to try and help them with it and they live in another state and, well, I guess I am trying to save MYSELF some future IT Headache by just taking on the responsibility and use my own old phone. Hahahaha! Purely selfish reasons here!!

    You could always have them switch to T-Mobile. That's what we have and when we hit the island the phones work just fine (they also work in Japan and the Middle East). No SIM card, no unlocking, just take it out of airplane mode and rock on. T-Mobile has a great plan for seniors.
